Overview

Almenkerk Wine Estate, in the cool Elgin Valley, is a real Family Estate; owned by the van Almenkerk Family and run by Natalie & Joris van Almenkerk. While Joris makes the wine - award winning wine -, Natalie does everything from sales & Marketing, PR and admin. Patriarch Joep helps out with sales, especially in his new restaurant De Brasserie in Strand, and acts as a mentor to the business side. Sisters Lieselotte & Annelies help with sales, tasting room and - of course - harvest (while juggling their studies and boyfriends). Next to that, we have a dedicated group of family & friends, local and overseas, who come out to help us during crunch time. Most importantly, though, do come visit us! Visitors to the Estate and our tasting room are increasing and - possible more importantly - returning to taste and buy some more. Life is beautiful on Almenkerk Wine Estate. We've been winning awards and medals. Some of them even for our cellar architecture! In any event, we consider our wines to be a form of liquid architecture.

Almenkerk is a great winery to lounge at and chill for the afternoon. The views are spectacular and the wines top quality. Order a picnic from Terra Madrid and station yourself at Almenkerk with a few bottles of wine for a perfect day!

Spectacular views, beautiful wines and very friendly people. The art on display is very interesting and worth seeing. Tasting room experience was amazing, also as the wine maker and owner came round to talk about the wine. We will go back very soon!

My friends and I love going to this wine farm. Not only is there a beautiful view and enjoyable wine, but the grounds are scattered with amazing sculptures. It's a lovely place to spend an afternoon. The only thing missing if food.
